Fem Book Club – The Old Lie

Wednesday November 20, 2019
18:00 - 19:00

Fem Book Club is an introduction to a diverse range of texts by women about women. Through informal conversation about each text we will focus on the manifold experiences of being a woman through different moments in history and across varying communities. It is an opportunity to think about and challenge what it means to be a woman and perhaps undermine any assumed universal experience by looking at how people of colour, transgender and non-binary identifying writers, or those who suffer with mental health issues have vastly different experiences of ‘feminism’ or what it is to be a ‘woman’.

This is a welcoming and safe space. We encourage participation from LGBTI women, men, trans and gender diverse persons and non-binary persons.


During this session of Fem Book Club, we’ll be discussing Claire G. Coleman’s The Old Lie.

Shane Daniels and Romany Zetz have been drawn into a war that is not their own. Lives will be destroyed, families will be torn apart. Trust will be broken.

When the war is over, some will return to a changed world. Will they discover that glory is a lie?


Centre for Stories’ preferred bookstore is Boffins Books – we value our local book sellers and think they are an important part of the literary community. Boffins stocks a limited number of copies of each Fem Book Club text. Please purchase your copy as soon as possible – if it is out of stock, you can order a copy and they will tend to your needs in a timely fashion.
